    I had spine surgery one year ago. I suffered with pain for many years. I was terrified of back surgery. I trusted Dr. Anderson and he has truly given me my life back. I recommend him to anyone who has suffered from any kind of back pain.

    I sought out Dr. Anderson because of his specialty and leadership in minimally invasive spine surgery. He was thorough in his examination and explained my diagnosis and treatment options carefully. He was a very caring doctor and really helped to relieve my pain and I was back to work in three days. Highly recommend!!

    in West Chester, PA |
    I went to Dr. Anderson after seeing another Dr. several times for back pain. When I went in for my appt., there was ZERO wait time. They took me right away. All 3 staff members were kind and caring. The Doctor reviewed my MRI with me, my previous Dr. could not be bothered to explain anything. Dr. Anderson was very compassionate and concerned. He spent almost an hour with me and assured me my pain would cure itself in time. He did not push for more appts. or procedures. A great experience

    Dr. Anderson is so compassionate!.. His bedside manner is the kind you would want in a doctor.. He's the first specialist I've met who was on time, spent 40mins with me, and I didn't feel rushed.. I was anxious and he put my mind at ease by answering all of my questions in detail. He was very thorough with his diagnosis, went over my MRI results with me, and explained why I need surgery. As scared as I am about having surgery, I am very confident that he is the man to do the job!

    Easy to converse with. Listens, answers questions. Attentive. Calm. Excellent surgeon given the great results I've had post lumber fusion and laminectomy.
    in Johnson City, NY |
    Patient with a difficult problem. He is attentive to detail: he asked if I had claustrophobia as being the reason why the MRI study was done in an open low power unit.I am not overweight and no clautrophabia therefore he requested a repeat study in a closed higher powered unit to obtain better details. The other examiners were happy enough with the present study.
    in Stockton, NJ |
    My initial appointment with Dr. Anderson was for a second opinion on my spinal cord compression. He asked me for all appropriate information and proceeded with simple but essential tests to determine the best treatment, which he explained to me in detail. He answered all my questions thoroughly and I felt completely comfortable asking him to perform the surgery. Surgery went very well and recovery was quick and easy. Dr. Anderson's follow-up has been very caring.
    in Mount Laurel, NJ |
    Was incredibly rushed. He gave no time to my condition, and did not listen to my symptoms at all. I have no confidence that I was treated properly, and I am thus seeking other treatment options.
